Overshadowed Theatrical Productions presents
A Tale of Two Cities: The Musical
Sept 14 – Oct 6, 2018
Book, Music and Lyrics by Jill Santoriello
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens
“A Broadway must see! Everything is here to stir the soul—young love, purity, vengeance, villainy, valor—all played out against that historic revolution.” —The Connecticut Post
Two men in love with the same woman. Two cities swept up in revolution. One last chance for a man to redeem his wasted life and change the world. Based on Charles Dickens’ masterpiece, A Tale of Two Cities is a musical that focuses on the love triangle between young beauty Lucie Manette, French aristocrat Charles Darnay and drunken English cynic Sydney Carton – all caught in the clutches of the bloody French Revolution.
Appropriate for all ages and audiences, this classic story of love, revolution, and redemption is what the Associated Press called, “the return to the era of big blockbusters such as Les Miserables, Phantom, and Miss Saigon.”
